The Italian opera is one of the most famous operas in the world, and the La Scala opera theater is definitely the place to go and enjoy this timeless musical genre. The opera season in Milan usually starts on December 7, in Saint Ambrose day, Milan’s patron saint, and every show must end before midnight. Great opera stars have gone through this world-famous theater, such as the opera directors Daniel Barenboim, Gianandrea Gavazzeni, Arturo Toscanini, and Georges Prêtre, among many others. The theater remained closed for renovations between 2002 and 2004, and the opera selected for its reopening was Salieri’s L'Europa riconosciuta, the same opera featured in its initial opening.
